One of the Bay Area’s top realtors, Alan Canas began his career in 2007 with Cashin & Company, a boutique brokerage in Burlingame, CA. When Cashin was acquired by Coldwell Banker in 2009, Alan stayed on. In 2012, he joined Today Sotheby’s International Realty where, in 2015, he became the number one producing agent in the high volume Burlingame office.
After speaking at the Sotheby’s International Realty Global Network Event, Alan was invited to affiliate with the corporate office of Sotheby’s International Realty - San Francisco brokerage. Alan points to the unparalleled exposure he can offer to buyers and sellers from around the world who have or wish to invest in fine homes, luxury estates, and condominiums in this sophisticated and culturally diverse area as the go-to agent of the San Francisco branch serving San Mateo County.
Recognizing the need to provide flawless management of complex transactions for his high net worth customers, Alan has assembled Team Canas which reflects his philosophy that “A team out-performs an individual.” In particular, Alan leverages the team’s speed and agility to support a proprietary process that he developed that enables him to get buyers offers accepted in 30-90 days, much less time than it takes most people to make their tenth and sometimes twentieth unsuccessful offer.
Before starting in the real estate business, Alan was a co-founder of an online business and an account manager for CIGNA Healthcare. A Bay Area native, Alan holds a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management, is married, and has an adorable daughter.
